Fried, you're an everlasting force of Simcha!!!

This song has so much good meaning and such a great happy messege of Bitochun in Hashem, that he will most defiantly lead us out of the dark Golus very soon, with a happy song and glorious sprits.

Avraham fried we know what your doing!!!

This is a great way to get the PR going, get one of your family members to send it out, and get everyone rolling.. It’s not the first time you did it, you tried it with the single, it worked, so you did it for a full album, I can bet on this that you are doing the best way of getting PR thease days.

Unbelievable!

Unbelievable!

I am not in the music industry, but having made short video clips for my chabad house, I know how much work goes into one minute of video. Everything that Avraham Fried has put out in the past has been so finely tuned and perfected, I could only imagine how much work and effort goes into creating something so magnificent. I dont understand the rational of people who download this. Would they enter into a store and steal a chocolate bar? Why would they lift a work of art? Obviously not. But people don’t feel they are stealing; they feel… Read more »

As a long time Avraham Fried fan, i’m very disappointed that anyone – let alone Frum Yiden steal from these very hard working and very talented singers!

On the other hand, had i heard this album before i shelled out the $9.99 for a LEGAL download from mostlymusic.com, i would NOT have bought it because it’s a very disappointing album sadly.

PURE GENAIVA!!!

PURE GENAIVA!!!

People don’t realize that copying any cd or video is pure genaiva! I was once in someone’s house and every single video and cd was copied!!! I was shocked! They simply don’t realize that it is stealing!!!

Reb Avremel is a taare and eidele yid. Number 5, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Stealing is bad.

He will make a ton of money on the album as usual Boruch Hashem.

Welcome to the music business.

Is it time for soup yet?

I’m in the music world, and I know plenty of people that do that way of PR, you have a very good point, Avraham fried is going out of style there are plenty of other Jewish singer’s competing with him, so he’s losing his attention.. I think someone should really get down to the bottom of this..

Leak
Guest
Leak

How exactly does an album download get leaked before its release? Obviously by someone who was allowed to have access to the production. It is a shame that someone trusted with being privy to the album betrayed that trust by leaking it to the public illegally.

Also, $9.99 is very cheap for an album with 14 songs which you can listen to again and again. The food that you buy for that price doesn’t come back once you eat it…

Anyone that wants to hear the songs, can always hear it at any judaica store with headphones!! And, if someone wants to OWN it, they will buy it. If they don’t want to pay the money, they will download from a friend anyway, so it’s not the fault of whoever downloaded it, in my humble opinion. Also, how could out of towners know about a new album, unless they hear it on line? It’s a chessed what they did, to publicize it, not stealing! And, if you really want to put someone down, maybe think first if you are doing… Read more »

I bought it from mostly music, amazing cd!!! Thank you Avraham fried for continuing to inspire Klal Yisroel with your beautiful talented Jewish sounding (a rare thing these days) music. Don’t let the haters get to you. Avraham fried is not going out of style for those that have an appreciation for true Jewish music that touches the soul, but if you listen to non Jewish music then you were never in style, that doesn’t make Avraham fried out of style!

I don’t know in which music world you’re in. But in the Jewish music world avraham fried is still by far the best out there. So please….
On top of that. The fact that you agree with 5 shows exactly what kind of person you are. So please spare us from you’re nonsense

Avremel is a shliach.
Guest
Avremel is a shliach.

He’s the Rebbe’s blessing to an entire generation,
which means that if you don’t feel “Moshiach”
when you hear this sung, you might need refine
your heart or tune your soul, until then you’re
spiritually tone deaf.

Sounds like a marketing scheme to me
Guest
Sounds like a marketing scheme to me

How many people would open an article titled “Fried releases new album”? A lot more people would open a sensationalized story like this one. It sounds like a good plan to get people interested in and talking about the new release. The quality of the audio is horrible so anyone who wants to hear it properly would buy it anyways, I hope. Either way, smart move from his marketers and PR people.

To all those claiming that it’s a PR move, you are still stealing. As long as you know that, keep talking. Otherwise, keep walking.
